A sloppy first quarter has put the Denver Broncos in a 10-0 hole after one quarter of play at Qualcomm Stadium.

The Denver Broncos find themselves in a 10-0 hole to the San Diego Chargers after one sloppy quarter of play at Qualcomm Stadium.

The Broncos offense has been unable to get anything going on the ground, as running back Willis McGahee has just two yards in four carries. With quarterback Peyton Manning completing three of four passes for 17 yards, the team has been held scoreless and is unable to sustain a drive. In fact, the Denver offense has yet to pass their own 30-yard line.

It's been the exact opposite for San Diego, who have not struggled at moving the chains. After scoring a field goal, the Chargers were in great field position when recovering a fumble on a dropped punt. The team capitalized by scoring the first touchdown of the game, after Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers connected with tight end Antonio Gates for 15 yards and the score.
